Blog 10

My final weeks in Copenhagen after my last blog were amazing. The weather was still cold, but there was plenty of sunshine and two of my friends came to visit. I finally went to Tivoli, the amusement park I had heard so much about. It was so much fun, and I was so shocked at how clean it was! It was nothing like Six Flags or Busch Gardens like I expected. Visiting all of my favorite restaurants was also a fun way to say goodbye to the city. I especially miss all of the brunch plates that seemed to be offered at every restaurant.

Coming home was less of a transition than I thought. Maybe part of that was the fact that we ended up having to stay another night in an Amsterdam airport hotel because of flight delays, so by the time I was back home, Copenhagen felt like weeks ago. Since I have been back, everyone has asked me so many questions about abroad and I have found that they are hard to answer. It is hard to sum up a semester of adventure in just a few sentences. There is so much that I learned, and I feel like I really did become so much more independent. Planning travel and coordinating places to stay, what to do, etc. really takes a lot of responsibility and forethought, which I sometimes struggle with.

I am so grateful for the time I spent abroad, and I cannot imagine my college experience without it now. It was incredible experience that allowed me to explore many different countries and cultures. I know that the experience has given me a lot of perspective and allowed me to discover new things about myself.
